Koi... Mil Gaya (I Found Someone) Reviews
the Alien FX are ok, but the basic (forgot to edit the ramps out of the shot) Fx bit the big one... poor editing...
Plot: A scientist creates a computer programed to make contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. Driving home with his pregnant wife, they have an unfortunate collision with a UFO that sends them off the road crashing in a ditch and killing the scientist. The wife survives and gives birth to a male infant. The child grows up to be a young man with a very limited intellect. A lady friend and the young man tamper with the deceased scientists computer and establish contact with Aliens. One of the Aliens has the ability of entering the young mans mind through psychokinesis. The young man develops special magic powers and his intellect boosts. Something like that ...
Most Bollywood films contain the usual ingredients and formula of story telling:
1. A wedding
2. Goofy acting
4. Bad action
6. Outrageous costumes
I don't know if this film contained all the mandatory ingredients of the usual Bollywood story because I ran out of patience and had to turn it off. It just wouldn't end and went on and on and on and on. My DVD says it clocks 176 minutes. It eventually was a hit and spawned a sequel.
I do like Bollywood films, and have seen some very entertaining ones. But this one was picked up drunk one late night on my way home. I asked the clerk: "Do you have any classic Bollywood films containing elements of horror, or science fiction?". "Oh Yehs mei Frend, dis is a good one, very very speshell price for yu mei frend".
Well I'll have to try and sit through this one again in the future. After all the clerk called it a classic, but then again I still have a handful of these films on my shelf I haven't even put in my DVD player yet.
By the Way ... I even have a Bollywood re make of "The Others", I haven't finished either. And that one says it clocks 165 minutes, while "The Others" only clocks 104 minutes. It's called "Hum Kaun Hai". It has no long dancing scenes, so where does the extra running time come from? The cover is also full of typos in English.
After all, who cares ... Bollywood is after the largest film industry on the planet and can afford a few mistakes. It only makes them even funnier if you ask me.
